US Vice President Mike Pence said the firing had nothing to do with the FBI's Russian Federation probe, but Trump dismissed the claim in his NBC News interview on Thursday. "Should have never exonerated her".

In his short letter to Comey, Trump made a specific point of mentioning that he "appreciated" how the FBI told him three times he was not personally under investigation over Russian Federation.

Trump said Thursday that he fired Comey regardless of the recommendation.

"I happen to have some lawyers that were unrelated lawyers - and they were saying, 'Wow, she's guilty here, guilty, guilty, guilty'".

"Then he gets to the end and he said she's free as a bird", the president told Holt.

Ransomware attack had 'nearly zero' impact in India: Minister
The latest virus attack last week exploits a flaw in a version of Microsoft Windows first identified by U.S. intelligence. CyberDome, a wing of technical research has been formed by the Kerala police after foreseeing the Ransomware attack.

October 28, 2016: Days before the election, Comey informs Congress by letter that he is reopening the investigation into Clinton's email practices based on new evidence, citing the discovery of emails on a laptop used by a top Clinton aide. Clinton said her campaign was on track to win the election until Comey sent the letter to Congress on October 28. But sources have told CNN that Trump's decision to ax Comey was made after he grew increasingly frustrated with him following a congressional hearing last week in which he said he was "mildly nauseous" over the idea that he helped sway the 2016 election.

Trump's behaviour raises "the spectre of possible intimidation and obstruction of justice", wrote Reps.

Trump has frequently attacked the press during his four months in office, from cracks about "fake media" to threats to change libel laws, but this appears to be the first time he has gone so far as to threaten to do away with briefings altogether.

May 2, 2017: Clinton again lays part of the blame for losing the election on Comey's October 28 letter. Moreover, this past January, Trump asked Comey to stay on as Federal Bureau of Investigation director, and publicly praised him on multiple occasions. In announcing the firing, the White House circulates scathing memo, written by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein criticizing Comey's handling of the Clinton probe. But he also said: "In fact when I made a decision to just do it, I said to myself, I said you know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won".

President Donald Trump seemed to throw him a brushback pitch on Twitter, writing Friday that Comey had 'better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!' The person had seen the memo but was not authorized to discuss it by name and spoke on condition of anonymity.
